Summary In a work of fiction, the birth of the Parícutin volcano in the field of a poor farmer is presented. Then, while at Volcano National Park in Hawaii, LeVar is only 2,000 feet from a major eruption of Kilauea Volcano. He tells about two kinds of lava and why volcanoes occur. LeVar talks to volcanologists who are studying the prediction of eruptions, and viewers learn what is inside our earth that causes volcanoes.
